"The Village Wedding" by Sir Samuel Luke FildesWedding Vow in Poetry: ‘Walk With Me’ by Amy Foreman The Society September 20, 2017 Beauty, Culture, Poetry 12 Comments Walk with me, though both of us May wonder where we go. Talk with me, explore, discuss The things we may not know. Sit with me, through anxious hours Of waiting and of pain. Stay with me, to share what’s ours In sunshine and in rain. Look at me and see beyond What all the world can see. Touch me, knowing I’ll respond With warm felicity. Love with me, when times are hard And laughter wants to die. Hold my heart with fond regard More, as the years go by. Walk and talk and sit and stay And look and touch and love. With me, make each passing day Our blessing from above.
